This is Coffee
Shows the growth of coffee, its care and the steps involved in processing it.
Ken Smith sez: A loving tribute; shows where coffee comes from, how it's served in different cultures, and how to make a perfect cup using various brewing methods. The narrator gushes about the "incomparable goodness of coffee" and reminds us that "coffee helps start the day with warmth and vigor." "Coffee is always the perfect companion!"

Never-the-less - - -
I have often ordered 'Yankee Coffee', then I gotta explain that 'Yankee Coffee' is coffee wit cream as in my travels almost everywhere above Kentucky whenever the coffee is served they always add the cream/milk anyway.
'Course up there they serve coffee that is just shy of petroleum.
. . . and that coffee with chicory - - - wow - - - it can give the uninitiated a bit of vertigo/dizziness.
British coffee on the other hand has been so thin that the date on a coin in the bottom of the cup is actually readable.
Between Portsmouth, N.H. and Boston is a diner - EATS - where is served a chowder that has gotta be the world's best in bowls large enough to bathe in and coffee is provided in super thick white ceramic concave sided cylinders with a single hole in a protrusion serving as a handle that accommodates a single finger. When empty these mugs can also be used as weapons. (finish the coffee first - too good to waste especially in an brawl)
With a nor-easter blizzard outside. . . hunkering down at the counter with the chowder, a spoon that could double as an e-tool, and THEIR coffee among traveling men - - - an unforgettable little slice of heaven from my wild and furry yout.
Wonderful people those - - -
Subject: Give Me Perked Coffee!
Perked is best. (But I have never seen anyone boil the water first before dropping in the basket. Seems like a good way to burn yourself.)
Quite informative, well done film. So that's what vacuum means? Never seen that done anywhere.
The blindfold, telephone, and carpet all match!

Interesting to see the Cona and many of the brew methods that have been redicovered in the last few years too. Everything old is new again if you wait long enough!
Well worth your 12 minutes to watch it if you love coffee.

Subject: Coffee? I like coffee!
I'm pretty sure all of my coffee scoops are approved by the Coffee Brewing Institute. If nothing else, they help me to make delicious coffee. Mmmmm. Coffee.
I agree. Once the delicious coffee is gone, all that remains is bitterness.
